Moscow man denies charges in wife's disappearance

LEWISTON, Idaho - A Moscow man has pleaded not guilty to murder and conspiracy charges in the April 2010 disappearance of his estranged wife.

The Lewiston Tribune reports 52-year-old Charles A. Capone entered his pleas Tuesday before 2nd District Judge Michael J. Griffin. A trial is set for Dec. 9.

Capone and co-defendant David C. Stone are charged with first-degree murder, failure to notify law enforcement about a death and conspiracy to commit both charges in the death of Rachael Anderson of Clarkston, Wash. She was last seen at Capone's shop in Moscow. Her body has not been found.

Stone has not entered a plea.

The Latah County Prosecutors Office filed a motion Tuesday to combine the trials of Capone and Stone because they would include the same evidence and witnesses.
